noisy as outside the traffic and the train are very loud due to room giving directly to external area, the breakfast display was poor and unattended.....central location is good, as there is no lift we needed to carry bags up 3 floors...no good!

We are very sorry that you did not feel comfortable with us, because our mission every day it to give our best. We have 5 different options for breakfast, and that also includes our traditional one ("gallo pinto" and eggs).

Hello!!! Yes, we have a parking available although it has a cost $12 per day. But we also have one space in our property, and if it is available for the nights you need we can reserve it for you free of charge.

Hello. The transfer from the airport is $35 up to 4 pax. The time that ride will take depends on the hour you need it, it could be around 40 minutes to 1 hour.
